MirBSD -> MirOS

From Wikipedia:

One of the projects goals is to port the MirOS to run on the Linux kernel, hence the deprecation of MirBSD in favor of MirOS.

Interesting. And a rather heretic sounding idea in the BSD world... I wonder what is the motivation? Better drivers and support for some advanced features available only in Linux?

A Linux based OS with many MirOS/OpenBSD features would sound quite nice to me.
